lullabies are counterproductive
do not bother to sing
for i will wake up,
and stay up-
to hear you finish the entire thing
i saw the stars in your eyes


...as in red stars
the supergiants on the brink of death





you should probably go see a doctor
the final exams killed us all
Oh merry townsfolk of mirth and glee!
You have crossed the bridge beyond the sea


To a land where no one knows your name
Contesting to bring your town some fame


Giving evaluations & tickling some nerves
Finally waiting 'til the best judgement serves


Win or lose? Reflect your journey and you will see
No matter the situation, a winner thou shall be

Hello!
Less than poet knocking,
haphazardly,
against the table.
What say you to a drink?
Oh, don't mind me,
I'm having a good time -
listening to your babbling is just ...
Refreshing is the wine isn't it?
Or should I say ale?
Yes, ale. You won't get drunk off ale -
much like your ramblings on about how,
what was it?
"My dearest's eyes are brown, like honey in the sun."
BLAH!
More ale?
I'll keep to my wine,
while I listen to your ...
poetics.
Thank you.
Hello and Enjoy !! (:

When my first girlfriend broke up with me,
she was as cold as Ben & Jerry's. (Yes, the ice cream.)

The message her digital pigeon did carry?
"I've Ben with Jerry."
follow up poem:
"I Got a Frosty at Wendy's"

It melted all away
Nothing cold can stay
When
my first girlfriend broke up with me

she
was as cold as

the very vacuum of space
she said

                that I ****.
